As a school nurse, Carol Hobson knew the importance of taking care of her own health.

After 23 years in the field, Carol retired in January 2011 at the age of 67. In June, while experiencing severe left shoulder pain, Carol’s husband, Wayne, took her to the emergency room at their local hospital. Doctors performed several tests which were inconclusive. Carol was sent home to follow up with her family doctor.

When Deborah Dahl recalls being in her late 20s and single in 1992, it's probably not what you would expect. After experiencing stomach pains, she went to her doctor, who ordered a colonoscopy.

The colonoscopy results were alarming. At the young age of 29, Deborah had colon cancer.

She had the cancer surgically removed at her local hospital. Unfortunately, during the surgery, doctors found the cancer had spread to her liver.
